Infineon: XMC4300 – Benchmark for EtherCAT® Implementation

New XMC4300 enables the most compact designs; it requires no additional components such as dedicated EtherCAT® ASIC, external memory or a quartz clock generator to start up the EtherCAT® slave controller. Designers benefit from BOM cost and PCB space savings.

The new XMC4300 microcontroller series by Infineon further reduces complexity in EtherCAT® implementation and cost in factory automation, industrial motor control, I/O modules and robotics. The XMC4300 series was specifically developed for EtherCAT industrial applications, where cost pressure places a premium on design flexibility, connectivity and performance without compromise to EtherCAT communication features. Like the XMC4800 the XMC4300 offers the EtherCAT® node on an ARM® Cortex®-M controller with on-chip flash and analog/mixed signal capabilities. There is no need for a dedicated EtherCAT® ASIC, external memory and crystal resulting in exceptional BOM cost and PCB space savings.

Can't wait to get your hands on the XMC4300 microcontrollers? Do you want to set up the EtherCAT® network that easy as you have never done before?
